Orofino Kiwanis 5th Annual Lumberjack Fun Run/Walk Sept. 11

   The Orofino Kiwanis Club is sponsoring its 5th annual Fun Run/Walk the Saturday before Lumberjack Days. Saturday, Sept. 11 at 9 a.m., the 5K (3.1 mile) run/walk will begin at Orofino City Park. This is your opportunity to get in shape for the Fair and have fun while doing it.

   Registration for the event is $15 with a t-shirt and $10 without, before Sept. 1. Late registration is accepted after Sept. 1 and the day of the race but the cost goes up $5. Locations for registration forms will be announced at a later date.

   Heather Leach, Chairman of the Fun Run Committee, said, “Walking or running is such good exercise and can be a lot of fun. We encourage people to come out to the event and walk or run, whichever they prefer. Kiwanis is excited to offer this healthy event in order to help fund our youth oriented community projects. Please don’t be scared away by the 5K, it is only 3.1 miles and if you start walking or running now, you will be in shape for Sept. 11.”
